William Lane Craig's monthly news letter came out today. In it he mentions that he's had some trouble finding a publisher for his book Atonement and the Death of Christ. 

Maybe Lexham Press could publish it?

I am surprised that William Lane Craig would have such difficulties in publishing something.

 The preponderance of the evidence points to the greater probability that WLC's book will get published. However, much depends on the possible universes God could create that would maximize the number of WLC volumes published, which is further bounded by the counterfactuals of the creaturely freedom of publishers outside His control, since God has to play with the hand He has been dealt.

We are, after all, in the best of all possible worlds without this book

Sounds reasonsable

Even if you aren’t a molinist (I’m not) you might still benefit from this book's defense of penal substitution. My understanding is that it's a more in depth treatment of his book The Atonement, which had nothing to do with molinism. And if you don't like penal substitution, this book will help you avoid caricatures and bad arguments. 

Careful about suggestions that this book shouldn't be in Logos or shouldn't be read... You'll bring the wrath of the Forum Police down upon you, followed by suggestions that labels like "penal substitution" are just too fuzzy to be of much use anyway. Or maybe that just goes in one direction. Smile
